2016 CFO Insourcing Survey
Overall, CFO confidence levels in 2016 are similar to 2014, but concerns about the future have risen. The United States is the “top location for growth and new investment” in the next five years for 20 percent of CFOs, up from 13 percent in 2014. However, this looks to be due, in part, to weakening elsewhere. While 33 percent of CFOs chose China as the top destination, its level has fallen from 49 percent in 2014. The percentage of CFOs who expect the U.S. business climate to get worse for foreign direct investment (FDI) in the next 12 months has nearly doubled, from 17 percent in 2014 to 30 percent now.
